I pretty much worked all weekend, so nothing exciting to report. Oh wait! There is something…
In my usual bumbling fashion (I blame the appletinis) I managed to sign up to judge the RWA (Romance Writers of America) Golden Heart when I meant to sign up to judge the Rita contest. That means I’m judging unpublished instead of published.
No big deal. So I got my entries, and started reading. The first two had the usual slew of problems (I say that as someone who made all the usual mistakes and invented some of my own).
Sunday morning, I got up early and started the third entry. I knew from the first page this writer has “it.”
Voice, story and polish. So awesome!
What’s even more amazing, is this isn’t even the type of book I generally like. It’s so exciting to see this! I wish I knew who this writer is, but the rules keep it anonymous. Still I am going to be watching…hoping I come across her someday and can tell her just how bloody impressed I am!
I’m really glad now I inadvertently (stupid appletinis! I bet Linc spiked mine again) signed up to judge the wrong contest!
Otherwise, my weekend was just all work and no play. Sadly, it’s going to be like this for the next two weeks. I heard a rumor that Linc is taking bets on how many more stupid mistakes I’ll make between now and then. But I’m sure that’s just a rumor…
How was your weekend?
